Hi Experts,

I'm using code

For Each ctl In Forms... to change the name of all the controls in a form.
That works fine, the problem is that the controls are in the wrong order, how do I change that? Changing the Tab Order doesn't work.

The controls show up in the controls collection in the order they were created, so if you want to loop through them in a specific sequence (tab order), you are probably going to have to setup a temp table to store the name of the control and the tab order.  

Then create a recordset based on that table and sorted by tab order to get them in the sequence you want them in, before doing your sequential renumbering.

Thanks, I just found it easier to add the textboxes from scratch.
